I'm in WIs and currently enrolled in an LPN course out of Minnesota to get my LPN lisc. bac. It is an old fashioned paper and pencil course with no interaction, feedback or monitoring...or assignment time limits. You just do this whole chunk of reading and writing and send it in. I started 3 years ago. Have gotten no where. The lack of feedback, the whole mess chunked on me...now, if I don't finish by May I have to re-enroll for 8 bucks I don't have.
I'm just frustrated and because I'm in the boondocks..it's my only option that I can find.
I don't know where to start......how much did you pay for this course? Is it accredited by NLNAC?
Are the credits transferrable if you want to go on and get your RN? I don't understand how you can learn by just writing papers and taking tests....you must have a certain number of clinical hours...how do you even practice procedures?? No feedback? How do you know if you're doing something right or wrong? This sounds scary to me!!! Also, employers know which are legitimate schools, and which are not, and hire accordingly. You could get all the way through the program and find nobody will hire you..
Becoming an LPN takes a huge amount of work; classwork, practice labs and clinical hours. I would cut my losses and run from this program. If you really want to do this, can you move closer to a commmunity college and enroll in their program??
I wish the best for you, but truly you need to rethink this...
